Oconee Performing Arts Society is preparing for in-person performances for its 2021 Main Stage season.
OPAS kicks off its season with the Memorial Day Weekend Patriotic Concert on Sunday, May 30, at The Farm at Oconee. This outdoor, socially distanced, family-friendly event will feature Brass Transit, the musical legacy of the band Chicago.
“I am so excited for this event. After such a trying time, I am eager to see the community safely gathered outside on this gorgeous farm,” said Artistic Director Doug LaBrecque.
“It will be so great to see friends again,” said Margie Forbes, OPAS Board Chair. “How appropriate it will be to sing "God Bless America" and thank everyone for coming out to celebrate Memorial Day weekend.”
On Friday, Sept. 10, OPAS brings three outstanding vocalists to dance and sing their way into your hearts in Broadway Sings for OPAS. Bronson Norris Murphy headlines the event; Andrew Lloyd Webber selected Mr. Norris to play the role of the Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera sequel, Love Never Dies. The event promises to be an enchanting evening of beloved Broadway favorites conducted by Tony award-winner Stuart Malina.
On Friday, Dec. 10, OPAS will bring to Lake Country’s young and young at heart its annual holiday concert, Fa-la-la. This yearly holiday extravaganza has all the trimmings: Song, Dance, Santa, and so much more! With Maestro Malina at the helm, this year’s yuletide celebration features our Oconee Community Youth Chorus and some of the Atlanta area’s finest musicians.
